Are Men Idiots Who Do Stupid Things?

Via NPR: ‘A new study shows what at least some of us might have suspected for a long time: Men are idiots and do stupid things. That’s the premise of the authors’ Male Idiot Theory. The study, published in BMJ, the former British Medical Journal, looked at past winners of the Darwin Awards. The awards are given to those people who die in such an idiotic manner that “their action ensures the long-term survival of the species, by selectively allowing one less idiot to survive.” The study looked at 318 cases, of which 282, or 88.7 percent, were men.’
